On the October 9th, 2013 broadcast at 12 noon Pacific/3PM Eastern my special guests are Leslie Kernisan, MD and Michael Millenson, both thought leaders in health innovation through from slighly different points of view.
Leslie is 'a practicing geriatrician in San Francisco with a particular interest in helping family caregivers'. She author's the blog GeriTech; whereas Michael is a quality health author, blogger, and activitist who writes from the perspective of health policy vs. the granulatiry of providing direct care per se. See Michael's work at Millenson.com.
The 'etiology' of this chat spawned froma twitter exchange regarding ACOs and whether they'll impact the care for seniors in any meaningful way. While a thread developed in response to the question, this chat will dig deeper and illuminate the current state of grandma's care and how high a bar the ACO need lift to in order to add value to grandma's experience of care - one pillar of the triple aim.
You can follow both on twitter via @GeriTechBlog and @MLMillenson respectively.
